On Monday morning, the youths who burnt two banks in Sagamu, Ogun State over naira scarcity later invaded the Sagamu Local Government secretariat and carted away the mace of the council’s legislative house.

The protest attributed to the naira scarcity had begun in front of the palace of the Akarigbo of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi, with some youths barricading roads and setting bonfires.

It was gathered that two commercial banks branches — Keystone and Union — were set ablaze in the town.

Reacting to the incident, a youth leader in the town, Kayode Segun-Okeowo, who spoke to PUNCH, condemned the development.

Oke-Owo described the act as a “motivated destruction and not a protest.”

“This is not a protest. I’m a comrade and understand the ABC of protest. It’s motivated to cause destruction.
